Cleaning windows is a ritual I attempt at least once a year. With clean windows I can see more clearly how the outside constructs the inside and vice versa. Cleaning windows also gives me a sense of accomplishment and heralds the longer days and heat of summer.
Cleaning windows, like all forms of cleaning house, allows me to care for me and us and our home. Fundamentally cleaning windows is an act of self-care as important for me as writing and reading.
